The first pictures have arrived from Season 3 of Twin Peaks.
They come courtesy of EW, which is running a cover story on the returning show this week and has included the first photos of many of the cast members back (presumably) as their beloved characters, either posing for the magazine cover or caught on the set, along with co-creator/co-writer/director David Lynch.
Many of the original actors have returned, including Kyle MacLachlan, Madchen Amick, Peggy Lipton, James Marshall, Miguel Ferrer (who sadly passed away in January), Kimmy Robertson, Michael Horse, Sherilyn Fenn, Dana Ashbrook, Everett McGill, Wendy Robie and of course Laura Palmer herself, Sheryl Lee. Missing in action is the demonic BOB, since actor Frank Silva left this plane in 1995, and longtime David Lynch muse Jack Nance, who departed the planet a year later.
And yes, in one of those photos is David Duchovny as DEA agent Denise Bryson ... and we have to say she's aged quite well.
We still don't know what the storyline will entail, or if all the actors are even playing the same roles, but no doubt some bits of info will emerge once people begin parsing EW's coverage. In the meantime, enjoy the pictures below as the May 21 return of Twin Peaks (on Showtime this time around) draws closer. I can almost smell it, like a good, strong cuppa joe.
